Anybody else watching this? Amazing show. The main characters are based on John Douglas and Robert Ressler, the first FBI agents to gain insight into the minds of serial killers by interviewing them in prison (Douglas was the basis for Scott Glenn's character in Silence of the Lambs). Set in the late 70s. I'm three episodes in and really enjoying it.

Agreed.

The lesbian subplot was filler that I couldn't care less about. Tench came off as a guy you would want to hang out with for a couple drinks. He was the only really likable main character except for Barney who we barely got to see and he winds up getting Jeffery Dahmer Jr. for an adopted son.

Keep in mind that, it seems to me, a lot of the filler and the relative interest of various narratives, are in part a function of reality.

They can't just make up serial killers and put them in the timeline to keep things exciting. Their skills and methods and the enemies they faced evolved over time.

The ending of S2 was kind of open ended and a little disappointing. The season also focused too much on child murders for my taste but the heebee jeebees of that wore off after 3 episodes.

I really enjoyed how S1 focused on interviewing the serial killers and hearing their modus operandi in S1. The producers slacked off on that aspect of the story in S2. Also, as you mentioned Ford's girlfriend brought a welcome change of pace which was missing.

Great series.

Did anyone else notice how the camera zoomed in every time Ford would hit the button on the tape recorder during an interview? The record button has the orange strip on the key and he often didn't push that one. Had to be intentional for such a detailed show but never addressed.
I donít remember the exact times they used it, but it was a byproduct of the 8 ripe cunts fiasco. They used it to say ridiculous shit to loosen them up. Then they flip the tape, hit record and get the good stuff.

It was all intentional

The ending is supposed to be disappointing. It's disappointing in real life.

I agree. But at least the son subplot could at least be connected to the storyline in that the son possibly fits the profile of a serial killer which is the point of the show. The lesbian subplot is just so damn boring and pointless. Even when it eventually starts being relevant to the main plot which I think they'll try to do, there's just no point in all those scenes with the bartender.
